We are pleased to once again this year be presenting our Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols Christmas service the evening of Sunday December 18th, 2022. Rooted in the service developed for the Chapel of King’s College, Cambridge in 1918, this service tells the story of creation through the birth of Christ, both through the reading of Holy Scripture as well as the singing of various carols and hymns. It contains well-known Christmas hymns, and a few special choral arrangements presented by the St. Thomas Choir and Director of Music Joseph Parr. The Choir and Organ will be supplemented with additional voices and a string quartet who will be singing and playing alongside them. With so many well-known Christmas Carols, the service itself is quite family friendly, and there are small activity books for younger children to keep them occupied between familiar tunes.
After the service, there will be Christmas goodies to snack on, along with hot and cold drinks available in the Parish Hall.
The service begins at 6:00 PM and will be done by 7:00 PM. Doors open at 5:30 PM.
